Mr. O’Meara, my kids and family say thank you!” – J.P.

Thanks Mr. O’Meara.”
License Suspension: ”Because of a long history of breaking the law I was suspended for 19 years. I spoke with Steve and after he looked at my driver’s record he wrote a letter to PennDot challenging every offense listed.

Just before trial the offer changed to a misdemeanor and probation only!” – Angela
Juvenile Law: “I was charged with arson and attempted homicide along with my brother. He was older but I had just turned 18. My brother was sent away to jail for 5 years and I would have been too. But my family hired Mr. O’Meara and he fought for me every step of the way. He had me treated as a juvenile first. Then was able to place me in a bunch of programs to show that I could be successfully treated in the juvenile system. In the end I received a sentence of juvenile probation. Mr. O’Meara never lost faith in me.” – MM

He told me it was a technicality only, but I do not care. I cleaned up my act and graduated from West Chester on schedule with no other problems.” – Pearl G.
Simple assault, terroristic threats, and PFA: “Got into fight with my girlfriend. I was hurt but the cops took me away and charged me with assault. I hired Mr. O’Meara and we fought it all the way. He worked it out and had everything dropped, no jail time or probation. He then had the PFA dismissed. Anytime someone needs a lawyer I refer them to Steve.” – Dave
PFA claim: ”Hired Steve for a PFA filed by my ex-wife. We were fighting only over custody and support for my kids. In his summation to the court he called my wife’s PFA filing a poor man’s custody complaint with false charges and only damage was upon my kids. The judge agreed and threw it out after yelling at my ex-wife. I was so nervous going through the PFA hearing but it was worth all of the anxiety. Now I have custody of my kids.”

Slip and Fall: “I was walking down the pavement looking for the mac machine at my local bank. Suddenly, I slipped and fell twisting my ankle. Turned out I had fractured both tibia and fibia and was placed in a cast with a steel rod and ankle plate and screws holding my leg together. No lawyer wanted to handle this matter because I was on the sidewalk and one lawyer said it was clear I was not paying attention. Mr. O’Meara got involved and said I was a business patron and the water that had frozen beneath me causing my slip and fall had come from the bank property. He hired his expert and within six months the case was settled.” – Robert

Slip and Fall: “I fell down my boy friends steps in his home. I broke my shoulder. No one else would take the case because they said it was my fault.
